Business needs are ever-changing, which makes IT infrastructure needs unpredictable. Sudden usage spikes, increase in test and development activities or the need for a disaster recovery platform can quickly drain compute resources. IT managers need the ability to spin up scalable, redundant virtual resources at a moment’s notice, and have the ability to make changes on the fly. That’s where a virtual server can help.
FLEXVServer is a pre‐configured and provisioned virtual server (referred to as a virtual machine or VM) built and deployed on the Cologix high-availability, geographically distributed PODS cloud infrastructure. FLEXVServer offers many of the same capabilities that our dedicated FLEXServers do, just in an elastic way. Each server is available in pre‐assigned configurations with upgrade options for disk space, but unlike physical servers, you can resize and scale your virtual servers up or down at any time. We can deploy and maintain an operating system from our library on your behalf or you can directly deploy your own via our IPMI (Intelligent Platform Management Interface). For these reasons and many others, virtual servers have become a favorite of developers and enterprises alike and an ideal solution for growing business or those that need to supplement a dedicated environment.
